A couple of months ago (time is flying this year!!?) I was invited along to a rather civilised Laura Ashley craft day by the lovely people at Joe Blogs. I'd never been along to any Joe Blogs events before and this one definitely sounded right up my street... a chilled out day of crafting with free access to heaps of gorgeous fabrics provided by Laura Ashley and instruction directed by The Crafty Hen.
Hanging out with some fellow bloggers, chowing sarnies and doing a bit sewing definitely trumps my usual pre-festival-stressed-out-midnight-sewing-machine-madness!
The second activity was to make accessories from Suffolk Puffs, which as someone aptly pointed out really sounded more like regional breakfast cereal than a frilly fabric thing...
I made a pink & green fascinator with the help of a lot of double sided sticky tape and glue gun action. And then I only went and bloody won the prize for the best one! You can see a close up here... I'm definitely putting that on my millinery resumé / I'm definitely now making a millinery resumé.
